This year’s Pumpkin-A-Long has begun! It’s easy to play along, and I hope you will.
Right now there are seven eligible pumpkin patterns, and soon this year’s pumpkin design will be added to the pumpkin patch!
The premise of the PAL is very easy: knit one of the Knit Equals Joy pumpkins, post progress pictures of your pumpkin on Instagram with the tags #pumpkinalong2021, #knitequalsjoy, and @knitequalsjoy. I will be giving away Knit Equals Joy patterns (digital) periodically during the PAL chosen randomly from amongst progress pictures posted and tagged on Instagram. If you’d like to use either of the above photos on Instagram (or Facebook), they will count as progress pictures. Follow those tags to see everyone else’s pumpkin progress and anything related to Fall that we post (because we love Fall!!!).
When you finish a pumpkin, also use the tag #pumpkinalong2021FO (for finished object).
At the conclusion of the PAL (Thanksgiving), I’ll randomly choose from the finished pumpkins and will award prizes. Wendy at Amanda Hope Yarn is graciously sponsoring the PAL with a $30 gift card from her shop. She has a great eye for color, and her yarns are scrumptious!
If you’re not on Instagram, email your pumpkins to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come join us and get in on some Autumn-knitting joy!!!

I’m thrilled that this year’s design, Spidey, is almost ready for publishing! Spidey creates a creepy spider through the use of two-color twisted stitches and some other fun textury stitches. I am looking for some knitters who’d like to test out the pattern for me. If that’s you, please let me know via email.

Happy PAL-ing! I love the new pumpkin design. Spiders are a frequent sight here in the mountains. I love you put them on the pumpkin
Thank you so much!
Carol, I just saw I won a pattern! Thank you so much. I have my choice narrowed down to 2- both of them cowls. We will see which one will win. 🙂
Hurray! That’s fabulous!
